Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 2003 bmw m5 with a factory cd changer located in the trunk. The cd changer does not sense cd's in the changer. There is a cd cartridge in the changer with cd installed but it still does not sense cd, will not play a cd and will not eject the cd cartridge. What is the problem and is there a simple fix for this problem? I recently asked a local car stereo company how much will it cost to repair the problem and they quoted a minimum of $300 plus bucks.

First check wiring (plug to rear of CD player) and make sure it's connected and tight. They easily come loose. If tight, pull radio from dash and make sure data cable is tight to rear of radio. Lastly, pull rear seat and check fuses in aux fuse box (drivers side) More than likely it's a cable issue.

I have a 2000 BMW 528i and an Alpine CHA-614 CD changer. I bought the Soundgate interface and hooked everything up per the instructions. The changer has power since I can remove the cartridge, but doesn't...


it could be the interface is bad. i just tested on with brand new changer..and it did the exact same thing yours did. its either the interface or the factory radio is bad. i would think the interface.

Replacing fuse for cd changer on bmw 3 series


If you turn radio on then mode it should display cd,if not there is no connection, either power or ubi cable.The only fuse is on the back of the changer.You have to remove to access.I don`t know your problem but if your cartridge will not eject, hold eject button and insert credit card under cartridge push fully in and move left to right this will locate micro switch.

Make sure cd changer is recognised on display on dash using mode on radio.This means it has power and correct connection.Next hold eject button on changer and insert credit card under cartridge,move left to right .This will locate micro switch and release cartridge.
